Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Had To Buy…But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where each week we get a new topic for a top ten list. We all do it…stop by Barnes and Noble or browse Amazon, and buy a stack of books that we swear we’re going to read right away. But then our TBR shelves pile up and we never get to them! Here are ten books that I bought thinking I would start immediately, but then I got waylaid by other books.

2. The Assassin’s Curse, Cassandra Rose Clarke

6. Vessel, Sarah Beth Durst


Seraphina, Rachel Hartman

8. Mistwood, Leah Cypress

  1. WHOOOP HEIST SOCIETY!! I finished that one in 3 hours straight and I loved it!! There has also been a lot of raving reviews for Seraphina and I REALLY want to read it, hope you’ll get through to all these books 🙂

  2. umm I’ve definitely checked out Vessel from the library (more than once…) with the intent to read it only to return it unread. I LOVE Feeling Sorry for Celia though, it’s definitely one of my favourites. It’s charming and epistolary! Heist Society is also a super fun series.

  3. No, I have not yet read any of these, I have however bought quite a few of them myself. *sigh* when will this end.

  4. I completely forgot Seraphina in my list. I bought that not long after it was released and I think I’ve read the first 20 odd pages (and enjoyed it) but then got side tracked and have never managed to get back to it. I haven’t read (or have) any of the others on your list so I can’t recommend anything.

  5. OHHH you have to read Prince of Thorns!! It’s one of my favourite books from last year!! I can’t wait till the last book of the trilogy comes out this year. I’ve heard really great things about Seraphina so I hope you enjoy it when you read it!

  6. I’ve only read Heist Society. I liked it, but I can’t say it was amazing. But it was definitely fun. I really want to read Seraphina and The False Prince. I can’t believe I haven’t read them, yet. My TBR pile is just soooooo big. 🙂
